I'm struggling to reach a new level and I think with some success. I do experience it as a new level in my work trying to help Humanity demands that I succeed if I can. It seems to me like an escape but it is not an escape. It.... seems like living a delusion but it is not living a delusion. It is living a reality but not the reality that our sick culture says is the only reality. It is real that out of my imagination I can Envision the soul in every individual and they're almost all on their life support. And like the Abel farmer that comes across a huge wasted Fallowfield that sees the possibility of bringing it to life, at least a spot here or there, that is where I want to live in that is where I think I need to show we can live. That is to say, I'm pretty certain that we need to show people, first ourselves, that we are afraid not to live, but we are on not afraid of physical Life ending. I don't think we do others a service when we allow ourselves to be too concerned with the ending of our own life or that of anyone else. I might be wrong, but I don't think so.

As the world around us becomes bleaker all acts of resistance seem futile. Cynics remind us of their insignificance. But acts of compassion affirm life....
Evicted. Note to James: James, if you are going to be of any use to anyone you have got to learn what is in front of you, the increased Joy seeking joy in what you can control, your effort, and avoiding all other distractions. There's now....
Einstein as I understand it was tantalized by discovering the unified theory of all physics. And if that is a correct understanding on my part then Central to that was his sense that there was such a thing. I am tantalized with the need to discover the unified theory of human Joy, loving, goodness. Which is to say I believe it's there to be found. That's what I work on.
I'm probably my V reading now of rauschenbusch Christianity and the social crisis I am mining it for the greatest of all glimpses that I think he provides of the man Jesus.
Those infected with loving, the joy of loving, I find a greater collection of them associated with the man Jesus than any place else which is why I'm so focused there.
Christianity is a grotesque Fantasy game where by magic words & actions you get an eternal condo in the sky and you get to despise, hate, exploit, neglect, and maybe exterminate millions or even billions of your fellow human beings. What's not to love?

Chris Hedges, on religion. A presbyterian Minister. Ordained.
The prophet is always the predestined advance agent of the Kingdom of God. His religion flings him as a fighter and protester against the Kingdom of Evil. His sense of justice, compassion, and solidarity sends him into tasks which would be too perilous for others. It connects him with oppressed social classes as their leader. He bears their
Our destitute working class now understands that the cloying feelyour-pain language of the liberal class is a lie. The liberal class is not attempting to prevent wages from sinking, unemployment from mounting, foreclosures from ripping apart communities, or jobs from being exported. The gap betwe... N
Protest in the i96os found its ideological roots in the disengage¬ ment championed earlier by Beats such by Jack Kerouac, Allen Gins¬ berg, and William Burroughs. It was a movement that, while it incorporated a healthy dose of disrespect for authority, focused again on self-indulgent schemes for inner peace and fulfillment. The use of hallucinogenic drugs, advocated by Timothy Leary in books such as the Politics of Ecstasy, and the rise of occultism that popularized Transcen¬ dental Meditation, theosophy, the Hare Krishna branch of Hinduism, and renew
"As long as the liberal class did not seriously challenge capitalism, it was permitted a place in the churches, the universities, the unions, the press, the arts, and the Democratic Party. Minimal reform, as well as an open disdain for Puri¬ tanism, was acceptable. A challenge to the sanctity of the capitalist...
“When it became clear to me that Jesus was not biologically white and that white scholars actually lied by not telling people who he really was, I stopped trusting anything they said,” he writes in his posthumous memoir, “Said I Wasn’t Gonna Tell Nobody: The Making of a Black Theologian,” published in October.
"The ferocity of his anger at the injustice endured by the oppressed was matched only by the ferocity of his love."
